It’s no longer news that to survive in Canada, you’d have a job, have some level of income coming in, or have more than enough money to cover your Canada expenses for as long as you’d be in the country.
Now, if you are moving into Canada married to a Canadian, the Canadian to a large extent, could be responsible for your stay in Canada. However, it makes sense to still do something for yourself.
If on the other hand, you are immigrating to Canada with the intent of staying there for a long while with limited cash, you’d most likely need to get a job.
Speaking of getting a job, just as it’s not so easy to get a job in your country, so also it is in Canada. However, there are a few things you can do to increase your chances of getting a job in Canada.
We want to discuss a few of these things with you and we implore you to fix them in other to make your chances of getting a job in Canada, better.
1. Work On Your Skills
Canadians for the most part, speak two basic languages; English and French. As such, you should work on your ability to understand and speak both languages fluently. This is because, you’d need English or French language skills to work almost anyway in Canada. Being able to speak both languages fluently, is indeed an advantage.
In addition to that, you should work on your work skills. For example, you studied engineering in school and you are good at it. There’s also room for improvement. Hence, if you get the chance to be better at it, do not let it down.
2. Prepare your resume
Your resume is usually the first thing your potential employer sees before deciding on whether or not, he/she is interested in seeing you. Your resume should contain your work experience and education. You’d also need to have a cover letter which explains why you are the best candidate for the job you are applying for.
There are guides you can follow online on how to better improve your resume.
3. Consider Voluntary Jobs
I know it’s hard but yes, this can help. How? This can help build your resume which as we mentioned above, is very important.
Employers often look at your work experience and during the course of doing voluntary jobs in Canada, you can get some work experience which you can include in your resume for better chances of getting a job in Canada.
4. Look For Jobs and Apply
It’s not enough to have all the things mentioned above all sorted. You’d have to do the most important and perhaps the most tedious part which is looking for jobs as applying for jobs.
Jobs often won’t come to you, except you’ve got connections in the right places of course. If you don’t, you have to go out there to get jobs.
Thankfully, this is the internet age and it’s quite easy to look for jobs online and equally apply for jobs online now. Just make sure you fix those mentioned above, at least to a certain length before applying.
Good luck with getting a job in Canada, friend!
